Sanity, leave me now! I choose the realm of dreams.
Rip.

And as I'm changing it again before anyone else has posted here, I won't double-post. Rip to the first sig in my first Siggie Serial...

Quote:
Spare a little candle, save some light for me. Figures up ahead moving in the trees, white skin in linen, perfume on my wrist, and the full moon that hangs over these dreams in the mist.

Silmaril Goodbye...

Well, I've been with this siggie for such a long time, I felt it was time to change it. I still like it though!

Quote:
Farewell, O twice beloved! A Trin Turambar turun ambartanen: master of doom by doom mastered! O happy to be dead!
Farewell, oh much beloved! You will return, one day...

Love,

Aethelwine.

From the most lyrical of chapters:

Quote:
For once more lust of battle was on him; and he was still unscathed, and he was young, and he was king: the lord of a fell people. And lo! even as he laughed at despair he looked out again on the black ships, and he lifted up his sword to defy them.
I would have loved to see this depicted in the film.

For now, The Faerie Queene. Very enjoyable, and certainly gives one furiously to think about certain names and motifs . . .

I changed my sig again. It used to be

Quote:
I don't like raisons...all they are is humiliated grapes
Or something to that effect. It's from the movie Benni and Joon.

My current sig are two quotes (the italacized lines) combined into one. The first is a quote from Agent Smith, while the second quote is from Peter Pan. The two combined forms a rather good attitude on life, methinks.

OK. Time to lay my old sigs to rest here.

My first and most appropriate, to which I shall one day return:


Quote:
And inside they saw the strangest little man, dancing the strangest little dance! He had saucepans and kettles hung all over him, he wore a saucepan for a hat, and he crashed two saucepans together as he danced!
And then a series of quotes from modern English icons that I found amusing and surprisingly relevant:


Quote:
I think it was John Lennon who said: "Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans.", and that's how I feel. Although he also said: "I am the Walrus, I am the Eggman" so I don't know what to believe. ~ Tim Canterbury ~

Quote:
I'm not from these parts, I'm from a little place called England. We used to run the world before you. ~ Ricky Gervais ~

Quote:
We should thank our collective parents for bestowing on us the gift of rock. ~ Justin Hawkins ~
But for now, I am content with a highly relevant (to me) quote from a slightly older English icon.

It's been a while since I've had this sig, but I thought I should put it here anyway. Sniff sniff! Goodbye, sweet sig! And may flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!

So short, yet so revealing.

Oh Jack Sparrow, it is with a heavy heart that I abandon your psychotic pirate banter and replace you with nonsense!

The Eye Ah, the dreadful doom of life...

*Sigh* This old signature has served me well, but all good things must come to an end. Perhaps one day, far from now, I will discover this little siggy in my attic, blow the dust off, and return it to its rightful place at the bottom of all my inane postings. But until that day, it will rest here.

Quote:
~Cold be keyboard and monitor and mouse.
Cold be your skin when you reside in your house,
But never more will you wake from stony bed,
Without logging on and checking the dead.
A moment of silence for my aged siggy.

Time to change the sig again...I've made it past Cerin Amroth on what I'm now calling the "Walk to Mount Doom," so I lay to rest Frodo's thoughts upon that fair place:
Quote:
Frodo stood still, hearing far off great seas upon beaches that had long ago been washed away, and sea-birds crying whose race had vanished from the Earth.
and replace it with something completely different!

I also think it is time to give Frodo something to drink, so I'm changing my avatar as well (Frodo has smoked enough by now!)

Cheers,
Lyta

New styles of architecture, a change of heart
They have been with me long enough so now I lay them lovingly to rest.

...our whole nature at its best and least corrupted, its gentlest and most humane, is still soaked with the sense of 'exile'.
J. R. R. Tolkien

I really liked this quote, but decided to let it go. Is my new signature just an excuse to link to the awesome bastion of amateur literary intelligentsia that is the Fan Fiction forum (see, I did it again!)? Mostly, yes. I still like the quote, though.

Well I don't have the exact quote, because I did get rid of it a while ago. But I would love to say a fond farewell to one of my most favorite quotes ever. If you have seen the film Finding Nemo you most definitely know this quote: It is Dory's quote from when they run into the Jellyfish, and she finds a small one, and calls it her "Squishy". I thought it was one of the most brilliant lines from such a brilliant film, so I had to have the quote for a while. But now I'm on to Gandhi for at least a little bit

And its object is Art not Power, sub-creation not domination and tyrannous re-forming of Creation.
J. R. R. Tolkien, on the 'magic' of the Elves

Adieu!
